Friends

"Friends" https://www.facebook.com/giftsfromtheseashop/

It is humanly impossible to stay closely in touch with my ever-growing number of beautiful friends all over the planet. These include friendships with neighborhood kids as a child - especially my next door neighbor who was like another sister to me. Decades have gone by since the last time I’ve spoken with some of them. Thankfully, true friends transcend time and space. While the

reality of that expands infinitely deep, on this earth plane and in this dimension, true friends are just as lovingly connected no matter how many miles or years separate them. True friends also understand and respect if the other needs to travel a path unique to
them - cherishing what they had and tucking it safely away in their forever hearts.

Facebook has made “friends” an interesting concept. It is another human tool I am quite ambivalent with. For some, it is a contest of how many “friends” they can acquire. Can’t say how many have requested “friendship” of me simply because fb deemed they should.
Some “friends” only use that status to invite me to their events and classes or to like their various pages. These are people who never interact on my page and haven’t even responded to my messages to them. (And I don't send out generic messages to my whole contact list!) Sometimes, after I’ve checked out their requested page or group, I try to invite them to like a page of mine. What do you know? Their settings are such that they cannot receive such invitations – the kind they just sent to me. Interesting. Certain people claiming friendship actually turned out to be not. Found this out the hard way when I could use some help in Costa Rica and in Hawaii by their response or utter lack thereof. Slowly, I have been decreasing the number of my FB friends and focusing more on the quality thereof.

On the bright side, I’ve had perfect strangers kindly take me in. Strangers who have evolved into wonderful friends. Since they are all around the world, in places I don’t know if I will ever re-visit, we may not meet in person again. But that matters not as far as our connection. We are now also permanently in each other’s hearts. Of course, there are many perfect not strangers who have graciously taken me in as well as more generous standing offers than I can count. I am so blessed!


Like many in this cyber age, I have a number of friends I’ve never actually met in person. However, one very special one stands out. We started out very young (same age, same grade) as pen pals. In the era of hand-written letters, paper photos, and cassettes, we exchanged many treasures across the years and miles. I feel like I know her and am closer to her than thousands of people I’ve actually met and physically hugged.

A few of my friends are unique in that we can
sense our energetic connection bordering telepathy. It is so refreshing knowing no words are necessary to relate.



I also feel that people come into our lives (and we theirs) for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Whatever kinds of friendships we share are all to be appreciated. They all exist to bless us. Here is a shout out to anyone who has ever been a friend to me from the time I entered this world…..including furred, feathered, scaled, finned and leafy ones….
Thank You All for being in my life. Thank you for the unique light you bring. Thank you for being the best “you” possible assisting me in being the highest version of myself. I request that any of my friends reading this, whether we use human words to communicate or not, join forces – forces in consciousness. In joining our lights we are a bright beacon assisting each other and others in moving forward at this auspicious time. We are the ones creating….a whole new world!
